Throughout the spring, thousands of dedicated birders flock to Rondeau to witness the journey of spring migrants as they pass through our peninsula. From unexpected daily oddities to seasonal returnees, birding in Rondeau will exceed your expectations! Over 360 species of birds have been seen in the Rondeau area, and at least 130 of those are classified as breeding in the park.
Rondeau is a peninsula that extends into Lake Erie, and we are lucky to be in an area of overlap for the Mississippi and Atlantic Flyways. This makes us a great stop-over for migrating birds! We see a variety of species as they make their journey north in the spring, and back south in the fall, which helps us uphold our status of being a great birding hotspot all year-round!
